, governor cuomo, we met with eric cantor, who by the way, kept his word throughout this, and the bill was drawn. we were promised that it would come up yet. we provided every penny of documentation, and the speaker of the house of representatives walked off the floor, didn't even give us a courtesy of a notice, told as ann -- -- so there's some dysfunction in the leadership, the speaker for some reason is taking it out on new york, long island and new jersey, speaker boehner is the one. he walked off the floor, refused to tell us why, refused to give under the circumstances any indication of warning whatsoever, and eric cantor met with us throughout the week, he devised the strategy how to bring it to the floor to make it acceptable to let the republicans who wanted to vote against parts of the bill, they could do that, but the bill was going to pass. the bottom line is here. the republican speaker walked off the floor without allows the vote. i'm just saying these people have no problem finding new york, these republicans, when they're trying to raise money. they raised millions in n
wolffe nbc political analyst and executive editor of msnbc.com. ron, we noticed eric cantor voted against the speaker's deal with the president. are there republicans who want to see him oust mr. boehner from the speaker's chair as well? >> well, martin, i always like to save some breaking news for you when i come on. >> i'm grateful to you for that. >> i have huge breaking news tonight. there are serious rumors that at the conference tonight at 5:00 john boehner will announce that he's resigning as speaker of the house. there are multiple senior sources that i have talked to tonight that have said that this is going to happen. >> ron, i wouldn't wish to question your sanity, but i find that very hard to believe. >> i know. listen, i find it hard to believe. i was put at a one in four chance today we'd be able to kick him out today. there are a serious group of members thinking about it. >> do they have someone as an alternative in mind. >> eric cantor is probably the one. >> is this a coup? >> i don't have any evidence. >> you have to put evidence forward. you put forth a rumor. sub shan
on the fiscal cliff bill that the senate passed overwhelmingly last night. house majority leader eric cantor appears to be the leading person against the bill because it does not contain spending cuts. house speaker john boehner has taken a position. democrats are urging him to schedule a vote on the bill as it stands now. >>> prince william county officer is being remembered for his years of service to the community. motorcycle officer chris young was killed yesterday when he collided with a minivan. flowers and crosses sit at the site of the accident. he spent seven years on the police force. >>> it is cold out there today. and some folks are getting sprinkles in some areas. >> veronica johnson is here to tell us what to expect the rest of the week. >> hey will. important the rest of the week we go down and then go back up. and -- as you mentioned some of us seeing the sprinkles. that was earlier today. that's now way down to the south. all of us seeing cloud cover take a look at our shot here. you can see the monument there in the distance. the -- washington monument. we have clouds to th
had from both the speaker and the majority leader eric cantor are iron clad. i think we're going to proceed. and i think that this recognizes the heartache and misery that both of our states, the region have suffered as a -- it has been as the governor emphasized, governor christie and in his press conference within the last hour or two, it has been over 66 days. i think it is about time congress responded. i'm pleased that the speaker and the majority leader have listened to our pleas. >> why not have voted on the senate bill and have it all done today? >> that was our hope, but, you know, it will happen. that's the bottom line. and it will happen at the amount that we think is required to meet the legitimate needs of the people of new jersey, new york and points north. >> we asked congressman king, the speaker tell you the reason why he abruptly yanked this from the calendar? >> as peter probably said, he alluded to the fact that there was so much going on, but did not give a specific reason. you might want to ask him that. for us, it is about getting critical aid to people who
. then had you majority leader eric cantor and republican whip kevin mccarthy who voted no. cantor said he was disappointed with the bill. here's how it was sold to republicans. >> so by making republican tax cuts permanent, we're one step closer to comprehensive tax reform that will help strengthen our economy and create more and higher paychecks for american workers. >> what's interesting is with a lot of big bills you see the speaker get up and try to fire up his troops to vote for it you will see the majority leader eric cantor try to get up and fire up the base to vote for it. in this case, it was left to the chairman of the house ways and means committee, dave camp. jon? >> jon: not a lot of holiday cheer among two of the most powerful people on the hill. >> that's right. you could definitely feel the tension going higher and higher the closer it got to the deadline. last friday at the white house, fox news has confirmed speaker john boehner told senate majority leader harry reid to, quote: f himself twice after reid had said boehner was running the house like a dictatorship and sai
and will do it. a lot of people looked at that and said is there a rift, is this eric cantor positioning himself for a coup. i think that's fairly unlikely. the house speaker boehner certainly has plenty of support going into his election tomorrow where he's expected to be reelected the speaker of the house when the 113th congress convenes. so i think folks are reading a little into that. but certainly it was eric cantor being a little who are conservatives. >> many are very angry about this deal. we saw this tweet from the tea party expression, amy cramer said i'm disgusted with what happened in the house last night. there will be consequences. what will the blow back be, do you think? >> in the short term, i don't think there's much at all. and certainly many folks believe that the tea party may be losing steam if anything under this new deal. but remember, as brianna pointed out, we'll be back here again in march. you have the debt limit, the government maxed out its credit card december 31st. treasury is now taking extraordinary measures for the government to pay its bills. you have
, eric cantor says we have no paper so there is nothing to sign off on. interesting to watch the dynamic. if this gets through the senate and moves to the house of representatives because the house democrats there are not going to want to care relationship all of the water on this. the house republicans are in charge in the house of representatives. and there is still some selling as you say that has to be done to senate democrats. i'm told by a spokesman to mitch mcconnell, don stewart told me that biden will probably meet with mcconnell later on here. when asked when there would be a vote. he said awhile. sounds like if there is going to be a vote in the senate tonight or tomorrow morning it will still be hours and don stewart said it always takes a little longer here in the senate. >> bret: and it does. what about just for folks who don't perhaps know the logistics and parliamentary procedures not to get too in the weeds about senate parliamentary maneuvers but tell them how this will go once they get a piece of legislation that they will bring it to the floor and how they will move i
. instead majority leader eric cantor said he won't support the measure. and others left open the possibility of changing the bill. and sending it back to the senate. >> woodruff: the story at this hour still unfolding at the house but all signs are pointing to a vote on the senate compromise later tonight. we get an update now froms in regular todd zwillich. he's washington correspondent for the take-away, public radio international. he was there for the senate vote until nearly dawn today. so, todd, it looks like another long night for you and the other members of the press, members of the house, of the congress. where does everything stand right now? >> well, judy, house republicans met about an hour, ur-and-half ago. they just had been on the house floor. now that vote was not notable except it was a whip session. here's what house republican leaders have told their rank-and-file. we have two choices for you. choice one is to amend this bill. they've got a package ready to go of spending cuts. it's about $330 billion over ten years. the house has already passed it. it's a

boehner and majority leader eric cantor walking in a republican conference meeting together. a show of solidarity, perhaps, after cantor came out against the bill that passed the senate this morning. looking live outside the meeting now. tonight on "special report," g.o.p. lawmakers are suggesting they may amend that bill and send it back to the senate. we'll explain what that means when we have live reports on both sides of pennsylvania avenue. potennial market reaction to the late moves. at the white house, president obama's plane but gassed up and ready to go back to hawaii. but with no vote and no communication with boehner, what now?

than the senate which passed a measure by an 89-8 vote. eric cantor was among the republicans opposing the deal. in the end, supporters won the vote. >>> taxes will remain the same for 98% of americans. they will go up for those making $400,000 and couples who make more than $450,000 a year. spending cuts were postponed for two months, which means we could be going through a similar debate before spring. president obama says he supports a balanced approach to reducing our deficit. >> we can't simply cut our way to prosperity. cutting spending has to go hand in hand with further reform tax code. the wealthiest corporations and individuals. can't take advantage of loopholes and deductions that aren't available to most americans. >> get ready for another fiscal debate in the coming months. congress and the white house will talk about the debt ceiling. we could reach the limit by the end of february. and won't likely agree to raising it without guarantees of spending cuts. despite this bill, you may notice your paycheck is a little smaller this year. that's because a temporary cut in a pay
that's a bad idea. >> reporter: even eric cantor, the second-highest ranking republican in the house, was opposed to the deal struck by his colleagues in the senate. >> i do not support the bill. >> reporter: but others said, like it or not, the bill was the only way to prevent a big tax increase for virtually every american worker. >> republicans and the american people are getting something really important, permanent tax relief. >> reporter: the bill will prevent an income tax relief on workers earning under $400,000 a year. it also will extend unemploym t unemployments for people looking for work. but the bill leaves a lot left to do. in two months, the government will hit the limit of how much money it can borrow, unless congress raises the so-called debt ceiling. an automatic, across-the-board spending cuts to the pentagon and other agencies, are only to be delayed for two months, setting up yet another fiscal cliff on march 1st. congress has adjourned. the president is off to hawaii to meet up with his family. and hopefully, he thinks for a few days' vacation. >> you mentione
vote comes and goes, the speaker is gone and told one of eric cantor's aides that the bill was -- connell: two part question to add it up because we have to go in a second. do you think or do you know anything about a possible vote today and what do you say to the conservative argument that come of that say we voted on this fiscal cliff deal that didn't have any spending cuts and couldn't stomach another votes on spending and some members of the new york delegation brought up to me apparently loaded the bill up with pork. any truth to that? >> absolute lies. whatever was in the bill that was considered pork was put in for other states, put in the senate, all taken out. governor christie and governor cuomo and governor bloomberg give a breakdown of the republican leadership, we were told it was satisfactory. there was no pork. i wish they would tell the truth. connell: no vote you know of on the schedule today? >> no. 100 people are missing today. the house is not in session today. connell: congressman king from capitol hill, talk to you again soon. back to the markets, big
it and send it back is what eric cantor and others wanted. the problem with sending it back is there would be no one to send it to. the senate left the building. the house would have gone back and said we're going to keep our apbldz in. what speaker boehner did is join the minority of republicans. he voted, so 85 republicans said yes, but 172 said no. essentially they violated their own unwritten hastert rule and used the majority of democrats to pass this bill. longtime conservatives see it as a rau for the president. >>steve: even in the leadership of the republican party you've got john boehner and paul ryan voting for it. then you've got eric cantor, the majority whip, voting against it. at the core, all the republicans had to hold their nose because they do not as a party like the idea of taxes going up on anybody. now the way it stands is if you are very successful and you make at least $400,000 a year, your taxes are going to go up to about 40%. for everybody watching this program now, your payroll taxes are going up. last year it was about 4.2% exactly, and starting this morning it
on the house side. speaker boehner voting for the bill. and eric cantor voting against the bill. the house whip voting against the bill and paul ryan voting for the bill. this is a real split. >> it is. it shows the schism and a real good demonstration of why it was so difficult for speaker boehner to negotiate a bigger, grander deal with the president. he was unable to get his own deal through the house a few weeks ago, and the negotiated deal that passed with overwhelming bipartisan support. 89 votes in the senate, didn't get the majority of the republicans in the house to sign on. what you are seeing is the difficulty played out for everyone to see of how difficulty it is for speaker boehner to get these kinds of bills passed through the house. >> quickly, given the schism that you outlined, this is the last day of the 112th congress and tomorrow is the big day for john boehner. how is it looking for them? >> i think it looks fine for him. a lot of grumbling among folks. he allowed everyone to vote their conscious. no one got forced into voting for something they didn't want to. we avoided t
